requests. vice president biden and the presidential debate said no one tolls us. i mean, the concern is we should have been seeing these sorts of things. there were the attacks on the british ambassador. there were the attacks on the red cross they pulled out of benghazi. there were attacks on the consulate itself. yet we had no evacuation plan established in spite of the fact that months earlier in libya we had i think to get an italian ferryboat to get people out who were in danger who were diplomats at the time. so those are the concerns. we want to make sure there is security for our ambassadors which gets to the issue, we talk about what happened on the talk shows. you said the best information what was best available at the time. the american people heard, we had a substantial security presence. they heard, we obviously did have a strong security presence. they heard, obviously there was a significant security presence. and i just believe that wasn't the case. and i would ask you today, if you believe that we had a significant, substantial and strong security presence in libya at tha
enforcement surveillance and for biden to leave -- forbidden to leave tunis. director muller told me that that had been confirmed to him by the tunisians. >> just very briefly, we don't know who -- no one's been held accountable, charged with this offense. before gaddafi was taken out, my understanding is the nation of qatar shipped in 18 shipments, 20,000 tons of weapons, machine guns, r.p.g.'s into the region to help different groups overthrow omar gaddafi. the united states gave a wink and a nod to this and i'd like a written answer to that, mr. chairman. >> thank you. we'll go now to mr. cicilline from rhode island. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you, madam secretary, for your extraordinary service to our country. that has earned you the deep respect and admiration of people all over the world and has enhanced america's standing all over the globe. your leadership on women's issues, lgbt equality, supporting emerging democracies and enhancing american national security are too numerous to list. but i want to begin by thanking you for all of your hard work and everything you ha
by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach of this law. now we must do it again. the last congress had the opportunity to take this action. the senate passed a strong bill with a bipartisan vote of 68-31. 68-31. yet house republicans refused to bring the senate's bipartisan bill to the floor, leaving millions without a critical line of defense against domestic violence. this congress has a chance to correct the mistake without further delay. today with 158 co-sponsors and counting, that's in the house, including every woman democrat in the house, democrats are re-introducing the re-authorization of the violence against women act which would expand protections to lgbt, immigrants and native americans. this has bipartisan support in the senate, including key women senators. it is bipartisan. and time for the house republicans to join suit and join the senate in a bipartisan backing of this measure. failure to enact this bill would deprive women and children of vit
